What to Expect

Hiroshima is world famous for the atomic bomb dome but you can't miss Miyajima!
Explore Miyajima shrine island, Japan's top 3 most scenic location. You will be greeted by wild deer there. 800 year-old Itsukushima shrine and its giant gate are very unique ones standing in the bay.
What you can enjoy on the island is not only seeing but also eating. Why don't you try Hiroshima's local specialty, Okonomi-yaki? Egg, cabbage, pork, bean sprouts are cooked on a hot iron plate and put together like a layered pancake (please see my phogo gallary).
The other destination is the atomic bomb dome and peace museum. Hiroshima is the first city that suffered from the atomic bombing. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima gives us a good chance to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.

“ Fun and knowledgeable guide ”

Keiko was a very professional guide who took us around to the major Hiroshima sites and museums. She was very sensitive to our needs and was very responsive to our questions. She was personable and able to talk about culture, history, and politics - and her own family and spiritual life in Japan. She was quite wonderful, you will be lucky to have her as your guide!
